Although the Maine Discovery Museum only opened its doors in 2001, it continues today to be the biggest children?s museum in the state. With its Nature Trails exhibit, visitors would be able to explore a twenty-foot waterway, a 2-story tree house, and get up close and personal with wetland animals living in Turtle Alley.
At the Booktown exhibit, young visitors are able to jump into the most popular literary classics for kids. They can explore Miss Rumbphius? library or get to know Wilbur the Pig, one of the major characters featured in Charlotte?s Web.
When checking out the Body Journey exhibit, visitors may travel into a huge intestine, study actual x-rays, and learn how to take care of a giant human body by flossing larger-than-life teeth and helping a larger-than-life heart continue pumping blood.
Other exhibits at the Maine Discovery Museum include Artscape and Mission: Discovery.
